Like the saying goes `time flies when you're having fun'! I can't believe that another year has passed since I first started the blog. Thank-you for the many comments and support. I love to hear your feedback and how my vintage and thrifted finds inspire the way you dress.
You may remember this postI did back in June while visiting my friend's cottage. She had told me about the beautiful lavender fields that were in bloom and how they would make the perfect backdrop for a shoot. To date it is still one of my favorites.
You can imagine my amazement when I came across these photos on @garypeppergirl's instagram feed. Nicole Warne is a model and blogger from Australia. She recently posted an editorial she shot in July for Lancome cosmetics in Paris, France. Maybe it is just a coincidence of creative minds thinking alike or maybe, just maybe, my pictures provided some inspiration (wink, wink).
A few years back before leather shorts were on the rack at every department store, I was in search of. At the time the only leather shorts that I could find were designer (and several hundred dollars) so I opted to get a little creative. I found a pair of leather pants with pleats (circa 1980) at a local consignment shop for a steal. I transformed them into shorts by cutting off the legs using a pair of pinking shears. I 'hemmed' them using double sided tape and voila, lambskin leather shorts in all of 20 minutes.
